“The first time I drawback to throw the big right hand at him, his face was like….like I was going to take his head off, right? It stopped me,” Mark (the man behind the Undertaker) stated that he was taken aback by Kurt acting hesitant in the ring.

In pro wrestling, there always needs to be near-perfect chemistry between the fighters, to get a good fight. If that isn’t present in the ring, it makes the performance uninteresting for the fans.

Hence, Undertaker was understandably annoyed at Angle’s hesitation to being punched.

“I’m about to hit him after he’s already waffled me three or four times in the ear. He’s got this look on his face like I’m about to cave his head in and I just stop,” said Taker.

The Undertaker stated that he could not punch his opponent in the ring if he was also not completely committed to the performance. He seemed very critical of Kurt here. “’Really, what are you doing?’ ‘IT’S GONNA HURT!’ ‘YOU’RE AN OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST. SHUT UP!”

Regardless of his timidness in the ring, Kurt has had a long and storied career in the WWE. Even after all the exchanges, Undertaker seemed to respect his fellow wrestler and Olympian, even though he understood that Kurt wasn’t committed to going all-in with the match.

“He was one of my favorites, once he got over the fear of my punch, Kurt, bless his heart”
